Safer Lambeth Partnership Strategic Assessment

The purpose of this assessment is to highlight the major crime and safety issues facing Lambeth. This helps us to focus our resources so that everyone who lives, works in or visits Lambeth will feel and be safe.

The Safer Lambeth Partnership is led by an Executive board made up of Lambeth Council, the Metropolitan Police, the London Fire Brigade, NHS South East London Clinical Commissioning Group, the Probation Service, community sector providers, elected Councillors and local business representatives working together in partnership to reduce crime and improve community safety.

This strategic assessment of crime and disorder in the borough is written to help the wider Safer Lambeth Partnership, elected members, council officers, delivery partners and residents understand the most serious crime and community safety issues that Lambeth is facing.

By setting some bold priorities and focusing on areas we can influence, this document will inform the partnership plan that will determine our strategic approach to reducing crime and disorder in Lambeth and guide decision on how to effectively allocate resources.
